Grassroots Disability Coalition’s New Report Reveals Five Consecutive Years of Rampant Violations of Ontario’s Disabilities Act, Known to the Wynne Government, And Ineffective Provincial Enforcement, Despite Unkept Government Promises to Effectively Enforce this Law

The Wynne Government has known of five consecutive years of rampant violations of Ontario’s disability accessibility law, but still hasn’t taken the effective enforcement action that 1.9 million Ontarians with disabilities need. This is so, even though each year it leaves unspent large amounts of budgeted funds that could have been used to beef up this legislation’s enforcement. That is the conclusion of a detailed report, set out below, on the enforcement of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, which has just been released by the AODA Alliance, a widely-respected non-partisan disability coalition that spearheads the campaign in Ontario for accessibility for people with disabilities.
